Having ended a three-year hiatus just over a month ago, the Raconteurs seem to be in fighting form after closing out the Voodoo Experience in New Orleans on Oct. 30.
Here’s a great video of the band playing their 2006 hit single, “Steady As She Goes,” which is off Broken Boy Soldiers.
Check out guitarist – and former White Stripes front man and Dead Weather drummer – Jack White putting his customized Gretsch Duo Jet through the paces:

The Raconteurs reunited onstage Saturday night at the inaugural MI Fest, held about 75 miles southwest of Detroit. Jack White’s band with Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence, and Patrick Keeler played a 14-song, 85-minute headlining set that covered material from their two albums, 2006′s Broken Boy Soldiers and 2008′s Consolers of the Lonely.

Can’t believe this went down just around the corner from us and we missed it! Watch Jack White’s surprise performance outside his mobile Third Man Records Rolling Record Store truck, parked at a lot in Austin, Texas. The yellow-and-black truck is part record store, part recording studio and sometime on Thursday, White popped out of the mobile truck to perform two songs.

Rockabilly pioneer Wanda Jackson hit David Letterman last night to promote her new album The Party Ain’t Over. Joined by special guest Jack White (on his vintage Gretsch) and his Third Man House Band, the 73-year-old singer shook things up by performing Johnny Kidd and the Pirates’ 1960s hit “Shakin’ All Over.”
Letterman was so pleased by the performance that he asked for more.
“Oh my God,” he exclaimed. “Holy Crap. Whoa!! Who was doing that? Oh my God. Oh my goodness.”
